now. janet napolitano, the second senior security official to leave the obama administration on the heels of fbi director robert mueller. did this come as a surprise to most people, would you say? >> yes, i think so. we had thought perhaps that if eric holder were to leave at the justice department earlier that janet napolitano would have wanted to go to the justice department. she's a former federal prosecutor, u.s. attorney and she has that legal background and she's actually made no mystery of the fact that she was interested in that but holder seems like he is going to stay in the job perhaps another year or so. at least a longer time than shy had perhaps thought. she's been looking around. it is a tough job to do the job of homeland security. are you reading all that intelligence every day and this was an offer that came to her and she just felt all the timing was right and decided to take up the position. so she'll leave some time in the fall. >> she was of course one of the president's favorite cabinet secretaries. there are now only six members of the president's cabi
